Universal Windows Platform

Welcome to the Windows Platform Developer (WPDev) Feedback site. This feedback forum provides the WPDev community with a channel for feedback on the following topics:

  • Windows developer platform (APIs, runtimes, and controls)
  • Dev Center Store (developer portal, back-end services, reporting/analytics and process)
  • Windows Stores (Windows and Windows Phone)

Your suggestions will be reviewed by the Windows platform developer team, providing feedback to help with planning ideas and to better understand how developers are using the development platform.

What this forum is not intended to cover or capture:

If you’re new to this whole UserVoice thing, we’d like to note two important things about this site: (a) List items (and item rankings) represent community interest in features, and does not represent an actual priority list for the product team; and (b) Suggestions made using this forum will be moderated if they do not actually represent a feature request.

How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

    • Include TextBox.IsSpellCheckEnabledProperty property and TextBox.IsTextPredictionEnabled property in Windows Phone Silverlight Apps.

      Just like in WinRT, could we have Spell Checking options and Text Prediction in Window Phone Silverlight apps.

      • WP8.1 Disable Fast Resume

        Hoello, with WP8.1 the Silverlight XAP apps are forced to use "Fast Resume". This has broken my app Swipe Tunes as I hastilly submitted a WP8.1 update with Transparent Tile and realised later that fast resume was causing issues with my secondary tiles etc.

        Fast resume has pretty much killed my app and I can't delete the WP8.1 XAP from the store, and as such it looks like my app will not be able to go back on the WP Store or if it does it will have to be under a new name and abandon previous customers.

        Please cant…

          • Support bulleted paragraphs with RichTextBox

            It is impossible to manage even a hanging indent because Paragraph lacks Margin and TextIndent properties. However, hacking a hanging indent is not the real goal - general support for bulleting.

            Build support for bullets and numbering into the Paragraph class with properties something like this

            NumberStart int, -1 = inherit from previous run
            NumberStyle enum {None, Bullet, Arabic, Letter, Roman}
            NumberFlags enum flags {UpperCase, DottedLevels}
            NumberLevel int

            Make NumberStyle default to None and all this is non-breaking.

            • MVVM Better Command Binding Support

              Better support for Commands for all controls, allowing to bind a Command in the ViewModel to any event from a supported control in XAML, without having to use third party tools such as MVVM Light. (no offense MVVM Light ;) )

                  • {x:Static NumericConstant} way of accessing constants in XAML page

                    The "{x:Static NumericConstant}" way of accessing code page constants in XAML page already exists in WPF. This approach will provide an elegant way of accessing constants both in code and XAML pages in Silverlight, and for my immediate need in Windows Phone 7. For instance,

                    public partial class App : Application
                    {
                    public const int ImageHeight= 173;

                    ...
                    }

                    in App.xaml.cs

                    and accessing the constant ImageHeight in a XAML page as:

                    <Image Height="{x:Static App.ImageHeight}" ...

                    is a neater way of coding as compared to alternative approaches.
                    Please please incorporate this in future release.

                    • Silverlight layout performance

                      The biggest problem I almost exclusively run into when working on WP7 apps is the layout performance of Silverlight. It's takes quite some effort to work around that problem. And according to web searches about this problem I felt that I'm not a lone with this. It'd be great if you would work on a solution to improve the situation.

                      • PictureDecoder that handles PNGs and can run on any thread

                        As for now the PictureDecoder can only decode JPG and run on the UI thread.

                        I am especially thinking about tile generation on background agents : I'd like to have an enriched PictureDecoder able to run on any thread and decode PNG as well.

                        • ensure theme resources are switched when resuming app

                          There's one area where Mango is a retrograde step when compared with NoDo : theme support.

                          In NoDo the user could leave the app switch the theme (i.e. Dark or Light) & return to the app which would now, in theory, respect their selection.

                          In Mango the user's faced with an unholy mess because the app is only informed of the system's theme state at start-up.

                          Developers have the choice of looking incompetent or ruthlessly picking a theme & sticking to it, thus rendering the ability to choose an overall theme pointless.
